"The Cross Was Enough!"

When those feelings of inadequacy come to invade your thought process and try to uproot the “Seeds of Greatness” that God has deposited within you, gently remind yourself that
“The Cross Was Enough.”


Inadequate does not describe God’s impeccable plans that He has for your Life. The Cross was the covering for all things sinful and inadequate. They died on the Cross and the same Resurrection Power that raised Jesus Christ up from the dead, is the same Resurrection Power that we can use to raise ourselves up from those dead thoughts of inadequacy, not good enough, not pretty enough, not handsome enough, not smart enough, not talented enough, not intelligent enough, not outgoing enough, not fashionable enough, not slim enough, not fit enough, not tall enough, not whatever enough.


ENOUGH!

Remove those dead thoughts and renew your mind in alignment with God’s Word. His Word is True and His Promise is for all eternity.


With the same Resurrection Power and In Jesus Name, “The Cross Was Enough!”


Smile and Love Always!


Heavenly Father.
King Jesus.
Holy Spirit.
Smile And Love Always.
All The Best, All The Time.

"Greater Things In Store"

The daily trials have already been rendered VICTORIOUS! God does not compel us to go where He has not already made provision. In abundance is how He provides.

Oft times we wonder why we have been placed where we are and with the likes of those that we might not ordinarily fraternize with. However, God’s placement is extraordinary and not a surprise to Him. Sometimes He positions us amongst the very people, in places and among things that need to see and experience the Glory of God, that might not have otherwise experienced Him without your placement.

Trust in the Lord, for His Plans may indeed include us, however, they might not have anything to do with us and are definitely not about us. They extend beyond our limited comprehension and nestle into the Glory of His Story, that is solely reserved for Him.

Whenever you feel that a scenario such as the aforementioned applies to you, gently remind yourself the Scripture of 1 John 4:4, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

Trust in the Lord, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬

Revelation, and not our limited comprehension, lets us know that there are always “Greater Things In Store.”

To God Be the Glory!

Smile and Love Always!

"In Spirit And In Truth"

Like Christ, most will not receive and or believe the Vision that has been deposited within you until it either comes to fruition or after the fact, when your Life is no more. With that said, trust in The Lord with what He has deposited within you and seek to please no man, no woman, no person, no place or no thing. “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).


The Lord does not seek the approval of the aforementioned before He does a thing within you. He needs not an ounce of anything in order to enact His Will. Therefore, we should do likewise in our approach to acting out His Will and His Purpose within and for our lives.


Understand that what God does is not solely for the benefit of one, but the benefit of ALL, doing what He has predestined us to do, so that no one may boast, unless they are boasting in the Greatness of The Lord (Jeremiah 9:24 NIV). We are Blessed in order to be a Blessing to others.


Do not lose focus or become distracted by the foolishness of a world that does not know God, as if He does not exist. Rather be the example of the Love of God that is demonstrative in ALL aspects of the Life that you lead. Bleed for the Truth and hemorrhage not for the antithesis of the Truth.


"In Spirit And In Truth" (John 4:24 NIV).


Smile and Love Always!

"Begin To Construct Your Life On The Foundation Of God's Word"

The Blessing to see another year in which all fear can only be seen in the rearview. Whatever happens moving forward will be orchestrated only by God, the Author and the Finisher of my everything.

The transformation was to compel the mind to leave it ALL behind. What God has for me is for me and me alone. What God has for you is for you and you alone. Moving forward, do not seek out what others have, for God already has your Blessing with your name on it. When we focus on others as opposed to focusing on ourselves, we begin to lose complete and total sight of the vision that God has for us, what He would like to impart to us, and what He would like to ultimately Bless us with. Hence the reason why we need to strictly and solely focus on The Lord.

His Faithfulness is as accomplished as our unfaithfulness. However, He seeks and chooses to Bless us anyway and irrespective of our shortcomings with regard to His Will and Purpose in and for our lives.

There is nothing that we can do to change the mind of an unchanging God that sees beyond our faults and shortcomings, in order for His Will to be complete in and through us. Had it not been for God on our side…

Begin To Construct Your Life On The Foundation Of God’s Word,” knowing that the storms that you do encounter will do nothing but make you stronger in Him, declaring the Victory over an enemy that has already long since been defeated, even before our very own conception.

God makes ALL things New (2 Corinthians 5:17) and our transformation in Him, is the evidence that we actually grew.

To God Be the Magnificent Glory!

"His Love"

The recreation of my situation is nothing but the confirmation of my Heavenly Father’s elation to my inevitable graduation from mediocrity to an established Covenant Relation.


With vision no longer being impaired, every move that I make demonstrates the reciprocal impartation that He first Loved, that He first cared.


I am and would be absolutely nothing had He not provided me the common sense to know that His Plans, His Purpose and His Destiny for me was and is not any form of bluffing.


Tired of being “lukewarm” to the idea and the notion that life is nothing but a rip current and I'm just aimlessly swimming in the ocean. My Lord and Savior walks on the very waters that I used to fear, leading me to the deep end, in order to uproot all of my ridiculous fears.


Overwhelmed by “His Love” and not with the uncertainty of ever finding something that already keeps me in abundance. I move forward, not tripping over what's behind me, including that of reluctance.


I give what was first given to me and look for everything in return, with the caveat being, I already have the very thing that I used to yearn.


“His Love.”

"Word of God"

All throughout the Bible exists the impenetrable POWER of the “Word of God.” Of course it exists within the Bible and it is on full display. However, when you witness the “Word of God” play out in real time, it is a sight to behold. It gives me goose bumps to know that His Word is far greater than anything absurd that is thrust in my path to only make me lose focus on the direction of said path.

The enemy flees from a Believer that is armed, locked and loaded with the “Word of God.” Demons flee, mountains crumble, distractions become transparent, strongholds are broken, in your weaknesses you are made strong, the perception of throngs against you are exposed and diminished, you become replenished in His infinite possibilities, you begin to see yourself the way that He sees you, fear becomes afraid of YOU, the Truth stands on the same foundation that the “Word of God” is built upon.

I have seen the “Word of God” demolish the unnecessary adversaries as God used them to strengthen me, securing the Victory, in order to create an atmosphere of Testimony. In hindsight, they were necessary evils in order to demonstrate the POWER, of the “Word of God.”


I'm a witness!!!

"Obedient Demonstration"

Your Love endures through ALL eternity and Your benevolence has taught me to do and be the same, irrespective of.
I live not in condemnation, but in a state of forgiveness,
reminded through daily consecration that I would be nothing without your "Obedient Demonstration."
No servant is greater than His master (John 13:16),
and I serve an IMPECCABLE Master in You.
Thank You Jesus!

"It's Free"

I woke up to another glorious day with an absurd amount of Love in my Heart,
I will deposit every bit of it before my Life is no more and my soul ever departs
I'm in tune with the Holy Spirit and all that it imparts to me,
I live my Life to please Jesus Christ,
Nothing or no one outside of my Purpose and Destiny
I fill in the blanks as they are revealed with the answers that I'm provided,
There is only “one way” to live my Life and I have adamantly and firmly decided
That it is the way of the only way that my belief has afforded me,
And this temporal space of mine that I'm in cannot afford the fee of being free.
“It's Free.”

"Something New"

When the remnants and reminders about a past that no longer represents you rears itself, remind it and yourself that you are no longer there and it is no longer you, who it and they seek. The physical resemblance is the only familiarity to aforementioned. However, when the illumination of Christ shines brightly through you (Matthew 5:14), your resemblance will itself transform into "Something New."

God has essentially restored all that the devil has ever stolen from you, making all things new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

To the old: Bypass by saying, "bye past!"

"As If"

They talk about you "As If" they know you, when their focus should be on the Lord.

They try to condemn you "As If" condemnation has been resurrected (Romans 8:1).

They hide behind the guise of perpetrating Holy, "As If" the cheap disguise is not transparent. 

They cling to fabrications and lies "As If," the Truth has been substituted in lieu of.

They refer to themselves as leaders "As If," actions do not speak louder than words.

They plant seeds of destruction "As If," they have the power to destroy what God has Ordained.

They think that they know more than what they actually do, "As If," they have been marinated in the Truth.

They parade around in fallacies "As If," the devil is not a liar.

They stand in judgment "As If" the same measure in which they judge, will not reciprocally be used against them in the same form of judgement (Matthew 7:2). 

They attempt to connect with the disconnected "As If," their absent Testimony will deliver anyone to anywhere, anytime soon.

They speak with split tongues, "As If" the Truth is comprised of strict divisiveness.

Only a fool declares his own greatness, "As If" he/she are beyond reproach.

Let the words and actions of others be not construed or intentionally confused with the Words and Actions the Lord has Spoken over your Life and demonstrated through the Blood of Jesus Christ.

In Jesus Name.
In Jesus Name.

“MOVING IN A NEW DIRECTION”

The Lord has Blessed me greater than the greatest of imaginations could ever ponder and beyond what I ever deserved. It is His Grace and Mercy that has floored me, keeping me in my postured state of humility, as He grooms my God-given abilities so that I may step right on into the direction of the foundation that He has laid down before me.

This new direction is not without correction, as I am made new each and every day, at the behest of his selection.

Who I am is solely because of Who He IS within me. I gradually move into my Purpose and Destiny without an inkling of reluctance, boldly and bravely. The unknown is made known only by His revelation by way of the Holy Spirit that resides within me. I know not nothing on my own. However, I move about with the confidence of His Sustaining and awe-Inspiring Love, that has me covered coming in as well as going out.

I move within the Grace of His Grace and in the shadows of Jesus Christ. The illumination casts down the shadows presentation making it not so, as I continue to Grow into the Glorious likeness that He sees me in. I begin to fill out the shell of my own skin after shedding the thick skin of the world, making my flesh fleshy in order for Him to mold me over.

I'm "MOVING IN A NEW DIRECTION" and I'm following in the footsteps of His Heavenly Perfection.

To see God when you see me during my Life's Purpose. For to God ALONE, be all the Glory.

Smile and Love Always!

"Albeit Briefly"

My Mother used to impart me that it is ok to "agree to disagree." The one thing that divides us should never be the sole thing that keeps us divided. Seeing eye to eye on every single thing is a fallacy unto itself. We are not all Inspired by the same things in Life and oft times it is through the intelligent communication to someone else that does not share in your Inspiration, the opportunity to Inspire them still. The chance to bring together the one thing that was intent on keeping you separated. Most people fail in this respect because it compels them to budge from their stance and give the divisiveness a chance to reveal itself in the form of the antithesis of divisiveness. What is used against you can easily be used for you, as you learn a new way to do a new thing, bringing together a new thing, done in a completely  different way.

She never gave me the complete answers that I yearned for, and perhaps that was the brilliance of a Mother's Love. What she did do was give me just enough of what I needed in order to allow me to draw my own conclusion with just enough guidance to keep me focused and on track.

The skillset used is one of humility, with an appetite for strength and agility, to hurdle through the murkiness of uncertainty, as one would arrive at their own maturity. A saturated maturation in the form of obedience that is not reluctant to impart its knowledge and wisdom to an audience, irrespective of a belief system. Rather demonstrating through the direct actions that are to precede any words or boasting of what will be done, but being an after the fact example of what could be done, when it is all said and done.

Direct your energy towards a synergy that seeks to bridge the gap of divisiveness. Agree to disagree if you must,"Albeit Briefly," until you develop the mindset and skillset to bring together what once sought to keep you apart.

"It's All Yours Lord!"

God is AMAZING!

I would literally run out of breath, exhaust the words of the English dictionary and extinguish my own Life, trying to adequately describe "The Goodness of The Lord." He is mighty to save (Zephaniah 3:17), and the real Ultimate Warrior, leading me in the True and Only way.

Every curve, twist and turn is made straight in and through Him. Had it not been for the Lord (Psalm 124:1-7), I quiver at what could have been. But Praise be to the only King on the Throne, for I know that He never left me alone during those tests. He was just preparing me for even Greater. For Greater is He that is within Him, than he that is within the world (1 John 4:4).

Lord I Praise Your Holy Name and boldly declare my Life for You to claim. For You to do as You will, knowing that the only thing that You do is within Your Will. How Great is that to know that you are Loved by the definition of Love that has cascaded its Presence down to the lowly of lows so that we may be inspired to reach up with outstretched arms in order to Receive. Longer arms will not help me reach You Lord. However, my receptive Heart is all that You need in order to reach me. "It's All Yours Lord!"

"The Heart is a Difference-Maker!"

The difference in the difference of opinions, is in the state of the Heart. One does not have to be in total agreement with another. However, when Greater Understanding is sought, the size of the difference begins to pale in comparison to the size of the difference that never factored the Heart into the equation.

If you are not making a difference, then perhaps it's time to examine the contents of your Heart, purge out the impurities that cause unnecessary dissension, making way for the reinvention of a new Heart.

We have a choice! We do not have to allow a fractured heart to render fractured decisions, forgoing the opportunity for reconciliation from the irrational behavior of a less than whole heart.

There comes a point when being obstinate gets old and the realization of zero results begins to resonate with the brokenness, and yearning for wholeness starts to manifest itself. The reconciliation is trying to take place within the same brokenness of the same face, that houses the same Heart.

"The Goodness of The Lord"

The lessons that come in the form of Blessings just keep coming, with no foreseeable end in sight for the wonders of the Might of The Lord. When your brokenness appears to be irreparable within your own 20/20, a Greater Vision is required in order to bring you out of the muck and mire of destructiveness.

The sanity within your calamity can be found in the Presence of The Lord God, by way of Jesus Christ, and the Impartation of the Holy Spirit.

Seeking God in everything, avails Him to direct everything our way that was meant for us, and to turn us away from and remove all that was never meant for us, according to His Will.

We resist in vain and endure the unnecessary pain and agony instead of embracing the Victory that has already been provisioned with meticulous precision. 

We must learn to Seek after Him, to put all of our proverbial eggs into His Heavenly Basket, knowing that He has already worked it out for our Good. For God is eternally Good and nothing by way of man or the enemy can ever negate "The Goodness of The Lord."

For He is Faithful and worthy of all of our Praise. ReJoice in His Goodness and Praise Him all the days of your Life.
